More Public Transit Community Meetings: Light Rail from Wilshire to LAX

We need to hear from you.
Today during our spring member drive, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. The local news you read here every day is crafted for you, but right now, we need your help to keep it going. In these uncertain times, your support is even more important. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership. Thank you.

October is going to be a busy month for public meetings about transportation. The city of Los Angeles is hosting a set of them on the draft master bicycle plan while Metro will gather input at a series of meetings about the Wilshire bus lanes .

The seldom talked about Crenshaw Transit Corridor project could bring a light rail line from Wilshire and La Brea into South LA and over to LAX, connecting with the Expo and Green Lines and possibly the Purple Line if that gets extended (see a PDF map here ). L.A. County Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas is a major supporter of the project, even setting up a webpage encouraging people to participate in the upcoming meetings, which begin tomorrow and are listed below:
